Nooksack Indian Tribe

Log Number: NAB-250377-OLS-21

The Nooksack Tribal Library will continue providing services to the tribal community and patrons of all ages from the surrounding areas. They plan to expand the library's collection with materials related to the tribe and neighboring tribes and add books by native authors across all genres. Youth will be encouraged to participate in the annual summer reading program, which is designed to develop literacy skills and a love of reading. The library will continue its "Stories of the Nooksack Elders" project, through which teens interview elders about their lives and create documentary stories in pictures and film. The library also will purchase additional copies of Upriver Halkomelem dictionaries to provide more resources for those studying the tribe's native language.
